government. the staff is fedele and their salaries are paid by the federal government. but public programming, there is no funding for that. congress does not appropriate any money for that. we are mandated to do non- partisan work, yet we don't have any non-partisan money. i enlisted this problem when they heard me. i participated in the negotiations with the nixon foundation. one of the things that the national archives wanted to do was to give $5 in perpetuity from every ticket. i realize that, years from now, $5 might be a quarter. so we negotiated 50%. i was able to fund our public programming, the world history program, and i contributed from that trust fund 50% of the money that went into the watergate exhibit. there was no way to have the watergate exhibit otherwise. by the 34th year, we havhad $5 million-we had half a million dollars in that trust fund. >> where is it located? >> it is in yorba linda, calif., about half an hour south of l.a. it is a good distance from l.a. to san diego. it is a little closer to l.a. it is in orange county. it is a changing environment, but it is a we
and johnson takes. i knew what nixon sat on the tapes. i recognize the problem with the federal government. how does the federal government paper over some one who makes racist and anti-semitic comments on tape that can be played over and over again? the answers you don't paper it over. that means that the library cannot be a legacy factor. >> we can at least read the transcripts. >> this is the achievement of part of the nixon project. before there was a library, there was a group of very dedicated archivist's working for the national archives. there was a legal professor who pushed hard for this period of the first opening was at the end of the 1990's. so there's a lot of very bad material that was available. >> have all of that been transcribed? >> know, that takes forever. very little is transcribed. even that is only about 15% of the abuse of power takes. long story short, here's the problem for the federal government. we have a habit in this country coming if i may say this now, of glossing over presidents. we have decided that they all have to be treated as if they are symbols of th
government and have very different views about what should be done. because of this, parses want to organize and coordinate but campaign finance laws but restraint of that. laws were designed during canada-centered elections and parties to an answer that much. we did it matter that much. we knew where the money was coming from. now we have super pacs and there is a severe mismatch between a high stakes system an old- fashioned laws that force money outside the regulated system and things will only get worse as every member of congress wants their own super pac and we're going to have an arms race. i don't see it becoming evidence that citizens united will have an impact on this. let me start with redistribution. total spending did not explode like many said. at least it doesn't seem that way from initial estimates. total spending was about the same or slightly less compared to 2008 based on estimates by the center for responsive politics. re close to the previous election and it includes all spending. same is true for congressional elections. total spending seems to have declined by 300 mill
areas are worse than others. the government has a compelling interest to address this. they need to try to put rules on the table, not to take away the second amendment, but to enforce more rules to negate these happenings. host: the president several times reiterating that the proposal deserves a vote. what he think? caller: i agree. congress is our lawmakers. they put things in place and have to have a vote on this. i agree it should come to that. i believe in the second amendment. we have to make concessions here. host: do you think that congress will take up the votes and what the president is proposing? what do you ultimately think will, of that? caller: i think it will come to a decision. it has become very imperative to do something about it. at this time i think they are going to come to a fair decision across the board, how to address this and put rules in place that we have to negate thkis from happening. host: jim from twitter says this -- "vote on it and move it down, and then move onto something important." we go to ralph on the democrat'' line. caller: i agree with the aut
small business and basically how government is getting in our way of growth. melissa: do you think they believed you? how did you make your case? what are they specifically doing that's slowing you down? >> well the big thing is access to capital and the regulations and the policies that they're putting in place but more importantly it's more about the indecisiveness of what the policies will be. they continue to kick the can down the road fo six months to a year and i have no idea what my taxation rate will be next year and i just found out about what it will be this year. and when you talk about the affordable care act, there continues to be waivers, exemptions, changes and differences in the policies that were originally very difficult and cumbersome to understand and now it continues to get more difficult. melissa: one thing that sound certain you will have to pay your workers more. you own and operate 12 franchise units. you have 4 fran chiees. you have mrs. fields famous brand, pretzel maker franchises all kinds of things americans are very familiar with across the country bu
with their small mindedness and small government proposals that they think that they can push through on the american people that i do not think are very popular. host: we have a different opinion from twitter. host: david wright's in on twitter and says -- host: dan is up next in california, republican. caller: hello. i would like to reiterate what was just said. i am a retired federal employees. executive orders used to come few and far between. this president is misusing them to an extreme degree. as the lady put it a little bit ago, executive orders are not meant for executive fiat of anything the president dreams. he is going to ruin the balance of power in this country if he keeps it up. i think he should be impeached for what he has done. host: what you think of the callers who have spoken up and said that congress is not moving and someone has to get something done? caller: that may be the case, but will we do is get congress moving by building a fire under them by making phone calls to them. this government is not set up to be in a balance. when the president tries to make ex
on wall street all the way to a trial. >> ooh, this ought to be good. please proceed, government regulators. >> we've actually had a fairly -- a fair number of consent orders. we do not have to bring people to trial or -- >> well, i appreciate you say you don't have to bring them to trial. my question is when did you bring them to trial? >> we have not had to do it as a practical matter to achieve our supervisory goals. >> and senator warren wasn't done making her point. >> we look at the distinction between what we could get if we go the trial and what we could get if we don't. >> i appreciate that that's what everybody does. so the question i'm really asking is can you identify when you last took the wall street banks to trial? >> um, i will have to get back to you with the specific information. >> i think they all need water on that panel. what do you think? the government has acted cowardly when it comes to the big banks, no doubt about it. deals are cut and civil cases get settled out of court. the banks don't have to change any of their behavior. you and i get stuck, or cou
because the government itself is a consistent obstacle. the national federation of independent businesses recently released figures from december indicating the mood of businesses is at a recession level. 70% of business owners that were surveyed identified the current environment as a bad time to expand and political uncertainty topped the list for the reasons not to attempt economic growth. lee, a resident of muskogee, oklahoma, and president of acme corporation, said a lot of small businesses had to go in debt to stay afloat. he said now they can't make the money they need to to pay down debts due in large part the environment the government has created. i joined a small group of members in congress. i have faced unprecedented difficulties ensuring my business succeeded. i step on the floor of the united states house of representatives with a firsthand understanding how high the hurdles are for a business to succeed and just simply jump over. last month when president obama was sworn into his second term, i was reminded of something he said four years ago in his first inauguration. the
obama with more taxes and more government. marco rubio is incredible. the key to our future is electing more people like him and tom graves and doug collins and tom price. we don't need this more government and taxes. we cannot afford it. rubio is great. he is a future president along with tom graves. host: >> you are frequent caller. every 30 days. respect that rule. what do you think about immigration reform and what senator rubio has put forward with a group of bipartisan senators? caller: its excellent. i think it will pass. the real problem is not immigration paris it is spending. we haver to cut itweubio was great. -- we have to cut spending. the real problem is not immigration but spending. rubio is great. host: have you changed your mind on immigration reform? caller: not really. we just need people like rubio that have the work ethic. it is something we need to do. we have people like ted cruz and marco rubio, who are hispanic and i'd think they will get a lot of hispanic votes. illegal immigration is what we need to do. i think it will be done. i think we will elect a republic
and don't expect governments to be forth coming about that. >> let me ask you briefly as the u.n. goes back into session to look at sanctions, what more can be done at this point? >> very little on an international scale. in 2009 they came out with some very good sanctions, but it didn't really influence the north koreans' actions. i don't think there's any marginal addition to the sanctions that are in place. they're going to call on the north koreans to blink, if you will. very little from an international point of view. necessary but won't produce an outcome. >> brown: ambassador jack pritchard and james acton, thank you both very much. >> thank you. >> woodruff: we have more about today's nuclear test on our web site, including a dispatch on reaction in seoul, south korea, from our partner global post, plus links to previous newshour stories on north korea. and still to come on the newshour, white house spokesman jay carney; palm oil production in malaysia; osama bin laden's killer; plus, shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreeniva
number of people out there are circling the wagons. they see the government coming to collect their guns, and they're preparing for fight. the only thingy figure is that movement, crude as it may be to throw these two issues together toward personal freedom, toward individual autonomy is growing, profoundly on the right as well as the left. people want to make their own decisions. they do. and it may be dangerous for society as a whole to allow this when it comes to gun buying, but there row visit. one bet you can make on america we are still a cowboy country. we like to get around in our own cars, live in our separate houses, read whatever, see whatever, pretty much do whatever. and the difference here is doing harm to others. two people getting married doesn't hurt someone else's marriage, nor does it reduce its reverence or love. having a gun in the wrong hands, freedom for that person can mean death for lots of others. and that is where the desire for freedom jumps the tracks. that's where our cowboy urge need wyatt earp to come in and clean up dodge city. and that's "hardball" for n
info about the benghazi situation even though hagel wasn't even in the government when benghazi happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks, the worse these characters, inhofe, cruz, mccain, and lindsey graham, are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe, even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had to say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chairman of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them? "the new york times" reports today that anti-hagel groups are right now hoping for exactly that. quote, leaders of th
things but in part on negotiations with the government of afghanistan over legal protections for our troops. the president has made clear that then missions of residual u.s. presence in afghanistan after 2014 will be limited to current terrorism operations and training and advising afghan forces. general austin would bring exceptional experience in overseeing this transition, having commanded u.s. forces in iraq during the reduction of u.s. forces and equipment from iraq. just this past weekend our forces in afghanistan have had a change of command, with general joseph duckworth replacing general john allen as commander of the international securities systems forces and commander of u.s. forces afghanistan. i want to take this opportunity to thank general allen for his thoughtful and devoted leadership in afghanistan, for his forthrightness and his interactions with me and the rest of the members of this committee. when senator reid and i visited afghanistan in january, we saw a real signs of progress, including the afghan security forces increasingly taking the lead responsibility f

[rooster crowing] >> must be watching this show. papers everywhere. >> good morning, everybody. great to be with you guys. i feel like i haven't seen you for a long time. >> i was traveling. anyways, the holidays, did that just happen? >> i guess so. maybe that's the problem. >> nice to see you, tucker. >> good morning. >> we have a lot coming up this morning a primal workout. alisyn on all fours making a tiger. is that right? >> wow! >> that's what i hear. they tell me i'm going to be acting like some sort of wild beast. >> is that in your contract, alisyn? >> thank you, tucker. thank you. >> i'm going to get my lawyer on the phone as soon as he wakes up. >> massive meteor breaking apart over russia. another meteor overnight. this one over california. dash cam video. wow. of the official falling fro

[cheers and applause] the era of big government is over. [cheers and applause] but we cannot go back to the time when our citizens or left to fend for themselves. [cheers and applause] instead we must go forward as one america, one nation working together to meet the challenges we face together. self-reliance and teamwork are not opposing virtues. we must have both. host: president bill clinton and after the government shutdown. that took place during his administration. we're talking about your favorite president. george is an independent in new york. caller: good morning. bill clinton, because he took a country that was -- he received the country from george h. w. bush, who did not seem to be a strong president to me, did
polling, too. don't believe that the government is capable of securing our borders. his credibility on this is low. i don't think that that's what he shouldn't have talked about in the state of the union. >> i'm asking you a genuine question about this. right? if you want to see this passed, obviously do you. you worked hard on this. i think there -- i covered this issue, too. there is a relative amount of consensus about the immigration reform. if you want to see it passed and the president getting out front of it will imperil passing it, why do you want him to talk more about it? i-want you to answer that question after we take a break. ♪ alright, let's go. ♪ shimmy, shimmy chocolate. ♪ shimmy, shimmy chocolate. ♪ we, we chocolate cross over. ♪ yeah, we chocolate cross over. ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing fiber one 80 calorie chocolate cereal. ♪ chocolate. 80 calorie chocolate cereal. but that doesn't mean i don't want to make money.stor. i love making money. i try to be smart with my investments. i also try to keep my costs down. what's your plan? ishares. low cos
confidence in government 's the ability to be a positive force in their lives. >> evan, according to the congressional budget office, the deficit is shrinking and will continue for a while, but it will increase later because of an aging population and expansion of federal subsidies. cbo is predicting that by 2023, ifs continue -- if current laws continue, it will be on an upward path and tell that to your children and grandchildren. >> paul krugman has convinced a lot of my liberal friends that it is okay to kick this down the road. >> he actually used those words. >> terrible idea. it courts all kinds of disasters. sounded -- the interest rate spikes. it takes a long time to fix these problems. sequestration is a crude, ugly tool, but if it had the effect of making people get serious about entitlement reform, it would not be so bad. >> colby, what do you think? >> going back to charles' column, he says that it is the first time since the election the president obama has been on the defense. i don't think that is true. i agree with mark on this, that republicans will bear the brun
on monday night right here. i will be hosting the documentary on what happened when our government lied us into war. how they got away with it, and whether we understand it well enough to stop it from happening again the next time somebody inevitably tries it. that's monday night 9:00 p.m. eastern here on msnbc. we understand this is likely to cause political upset when we air it, but sometimes you got to do that anyway. after all, it's for a good cause. now it's time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell." have a great night. >>> today republicans blocked a vote on chuck hagel just because they can. >> well, it's valentine's day. love is not in the air. >> it's shocking. >> not a lot of love for chuck hagel. >> to filibuster of the senator's confirmation is unprecedented. >> unprecedented filibuster. >> the debate on chuck hagel is is not over. >> all roads lead to benghazi. >> i'm going to fight zblooes willing to fight to the very end. >> i'm going to hit you and keep hitting you. absolutely. >> who blinks first? >> nobody is quite certain. >> the filibuster of senator hagel's conf

of cutting, we saw an unprecedented explosion of government spending and debt. it was unlike anything we've ever seen before in the history of the country. >> last year a gop response by mitch daniels had competition from the herminator. >> in a word i heard the speech, and it came across as a hodge podge of little ideas. >> this year senator marco rubio will deliver the republican response, while rubio was once the standard bearer for the tea party, the group is still opting for its own rival rebuttal from the man who said this after the past election. >> there is one compromise i would be in favor of, and that's that all spending should be cut. >> joining the panel now to discuss is msnbc contributor ari melber and jake sherman. jake, what are the optics here? ran paul on cnn said to me i see it as an extra response, but it doesn't really project party unity to have different responses to the president. >> i think if john boehner and mitch mcconnell had their choice here, they would have one person going forward with the response. you know ran paul is not likely to give his remarks ove
developments in the executive order. one is that the federal government has to produce unclassified reports about the cyber threat and distribute them widely to regular businesses that may be the target and the second is that they need to take more of the classified information about the threat and share it beyond the defense sector which is typically where that information sharing has stopped. for people who are concerned about the invasion of an individual's privacy, this is kind of where the rubber meets the road, and critics say that this may be one step closer to really that sort of big data, big brother society that many americans say they fear, jenna. jenna: that is so interesting. there is a fine line here, the people are concerned about wanting to keep us safe but also make sure we can keep our private lives private. a story we'll continue to watch, catherine, thank you so much. >> reporter: you're welcome. jon: a desperate search for an escaped inmate. a hunt for a man who police say stabbed an officer four times and somehow got away. how they say he did it coming up. also the vac
have in the government, one of the largest workforces in the world. i mean, it's a hugely complicated thing to do administratively, logistically, politically. strong centers of power in that building, right? i have no idea whether chuck hagel is up to it, nor does anyone. none of that has been lit gaited at all. he talked to al jazeera once, gave speeches to. the actual job the guy is going to do, i don't know if i have a dog in the fight. do i care if chuck hagel is running the pentagon? as far as i can tell, no one has done much in congress to sort of sort that out. >> and the one thing that job, is a policymaker. that is not the person who decides whether we go to war but takes the orders from the white house about how to implement it. that is not the person who decides what our relationship is with any other foreign country. those issues belong in other jobs. that's what they made the whole hearing about. >> no, absolutely. and even their fixation on benghazi is located in state. they went after hillary clinton -- >> 100%. >> that has nothing to do with this job either. at the end
that will start generating more revenue for the government? i feel like it will just cause more problems for the economy and more spending to take care of more citizens. host: mary in mississippi, republican. caller: hi. i would just like to commend the 12-year-old boy that called. it's wonderful that he has an interest in politics and that he really is informed and trying to find out what is really going on in the country. i feel that is, as a republican, that is one of the problems with the democrats, they don't listen and they don't find out what is really going on. i think they voted because they thought it was cool to vote for obama. i would like to say to marco rubio that night when he's giving his rebuttal in spanish, that he encourages all the illegal aliens and even illegal aliens not to learn the english language. host: we saw a news story talking about how the senator plans to stop about other issues like education. are you looking forward to hear what else he has to say, as a republican? caller: yes, i am. i really think highly of him. i really liked him and what he stands fo
